Kids are curious and are constantly wondering how and why everything is . . . but do you know the correct answer? How? goes through a series of common questions that kids may ask and gives them (and you!) a simple, easy-to-understand answer, accompanied by helpful illustrations and diagrams. Subjects include birthdays, pets, libraries, feeling sick and more. Also includes a helpful index in the back.
The team behind Why? (2001) returns with another book that finds numerous questions (and answers) in everyday subjects. Divided into seven sections (birthdays, the library, pets, illness, road trips, the beach, and the airport) with 10 or so subquestions for each category, the book is built around two children in a multiracial family whose grandmother comes to visit. Jakes birthday party begets questions like Why do balloons pop? while a drive to the beach allows Ripley to explain how roads and bridges are built. Ritchies loose, friendly images create a bright and cheerful environment, and Ripleys concise answers will arm readers with new knowledgeand likely prompt follow-up questions. Ages 37.
